The Space

This is a listing for our tiny second bedroom:

•Our house was built in the late 1800's so it is a bit rough but in the fantastic location of Albert Park;
•Rent is $35 ($45 for a couple) per night all-inclusive;
•Furnished room inclusive of linen, towels, Wi-Fi and laundry;
•DIY eggs & toast for breakfast, tea, coffee, milk, spices and anything else you find the kitchen;
•MYKI Cards (travel cards for the tram system)
•Within walking distance of Albert Park Lake & the Formula 1 race track;
•10 minute ride on the No 1 tram will take you into the center of Melbourne and No 96 into Southern Cross Station;
•2 bicycles & helmets available for your use. 5 minute ride to the beach/15 min to St Kilda;
•Back garden complete with veggie patch and hammock;
•You will be sharing with a social couple and our little dog 'Jack'. We both work in theatre (Stage Manager & Audio Engineer) so are night owls and not early birds thus our place is definitely not suited to light sleepers that want to be tucked up in bed early;
•Feel free to spin a disk, have a game of ping pong, a strum on the guitars or just relax in the hammock!

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • A stay with Claire and Cob was the perfect introduction to Airbnb! They're warm and kind people who will make you feel like you're at home and the location is perfect for a quick trip into town on the tram or a walk to the shops. Thanks for looking after us during our stay in Melbourne guys!

  • Claire and Cob were great. Easy to talk to and had good advice on things, places, and people. Bikes were nice too. The room isn't terribly large but the bed is comfy enough and the apartment has a good vibe. Thanks again guys

  • Not so far away from Melbourne CBD (I borrowed myki card), cozy house, kind Claire&Cob. This place made my trip wonderful! (Even lovely Jack, the dog, as well) Thanks for letting me stay here!

  • ☆★✭Stay here! Our 3 night stay, turned into nearly 2 weeks - They are wonderful hosts; generous, funny and very hospitable. This really is a great place to stay, and a much better alternative to a hostel - especially if you are a couple. The location is perfect, so close to the CBT and main tram lines! - or you can borrow their bikes and pedal about. We couldn't have expected any more. Thanks Again! ☆★☆

  • Really lovely place, super quiet at night and close enough to walk to the city or beach and public transport and supermarket in close reach. Claire and cob were nice and very welcoming, left us to our own devices and we felt very at home. The bedroom is small but it's got a huge window and you can fit yourself and all your stuff in no problem.

  • The place was a little bit difficult to find. The area is beautiful, far from the centre but you can take a tram wich is quiet close. Also you have the beach near it. The place was as you can see in pictures more or less. The room is small but we already knew it. The bathroom was clean. Claire let you use everything as it was your house. The only thing I didnt like is that she mocked everytime I said a word, and I didnt like that attitude

  • I spent a week at Claire's and Cob's (website hidden)'s a basic accommodation close to the heart of melbourne. Great price and ideally located. I would reccomend it. And thank you Claire taking me to Southern Cross Station on the day I left!
